Premier League teams paid tribute to 1966 World Cup winner Jack Charlton on Saturday by observing a minute’s silence before kick off after he died aged 85. 

Charlton passed away at his home in Northumberland on Friday after suffering from dementia and lymphoma. 

Players showed their respect for the England hero before Saturday’s early games between Norwich and West Ham and Watford v Newcastle, with black armbands worn in his memory.

The gesture will be followed before all games this weekend after the Premier League announced the plans and offered their condolences to Charlton’s family. 

Tributes have poured in across football for Charlton, who was part of Alf Ramsey’s famous England team that lifted the World Cup at Wembley Stadium in 1966.

The English top flight said it was ‘deeply saddened’ to hear about his passing. 

‘The Premier League offers sincere condolences to Jack’s family, friends and all those who worked with him at this sad time,’ it said in a statement.

Charlton played for Leeds United for 21 years, making a club record of 773 appearances. He also managed Middlesbrough, Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle.

He later took charge of the Republic of Ireland – helping them qualify for two World Cups and a European Championship.
